Regardless of size cybersecurity has become a massive source of frustration for organizations all sizes. A greater percentage of IT spending is now being consumed by cybersecurity products and services.
Network Virtualization (NV) creates logical, virtual networks that are decoupled from the underlying network hardware to ensure the network can better integrate with and support increasingly virtual environments.
SDxCentral's experts continually curate a collection of Network Virtualization articles, white papers, videos and other resources to make it easier for members to learn about the concept, use cases and technology.
SDxCentral's Network Virtualization in the Data Center Report reviews all the shifts taking place in the market today, and covers modern approaches to NV and the vendors and solutions users are adopting to achieve greater agility and operational efficiencies.
The analyst firm also predicts that by 2023 more than 90 percent of WAN edge infrastructure initiatives will be based on SD-WAN.
This Research Brief from AvidThink is aimed at providing enterprises and service providers with a view of the challenges in modern networking, and detailed strategies on how to overcome them by laying the right foundation for network automation.
IT organizations complain that the lack of SDN-specific skills among engineers is resulting in a slow transition to virtualization but engineers don’t have much incentive to get those skills.
Some companies argue that providing access to a POP network via cloud gateways is a competitive advantage.
At the SD-WAN Summit 2018 in Paris, one of the more contentious debates was which will come first: next-generation firewall or new SD-WAN capabilities?
WiFi, fixed access, and satellites are promising technologies that operators should consider as viable alternatives to fiber or microwave for 5G backhaul.
Flat networks make it possible to centrally provision resources without having to reconfigure policies.
Networking professionals no longer can only have a limited scope of skills. The addition of other certifications will mean more career growth and more pay.
Automation is getting a lot of buzz right now but operators should only use automation if it helps reduce the complexity of the network or compensates for human limitations.
There are many reasons to deploy a network virtualization overlay. But the biggest advantage to an NV overlay is that it can extend the capabilities of legacy networks.
Many companies find that deploying a network virtualization overlay makes more sense because of the ROI.
SDN technologies are diverse, making it difficult for network engineers to know what technologies they should learn to master.
